What happens if someone accidentally knocks the USB connection out, or the drive off the desk.

Your software will become corrupted.

They're great for file storage, but I think that the route you appear to have taken is very high risk. I would also worry that the USB connection had insufficient bandwidth for a busy piece of work.
